Friday, April 3rd… Hello to Parents and Students. 

I hope that is all well with you and I hope that you all know how much I miss having school and seeing my students.  Please let me know if there is anything that you need that I can help you with.  I appreciate everyone being patient with me as I learn to navigate online teaching.

I know there is a more efficient way to post what I have posted below, but you are going to have to give me a little more time to figure that out.  That being said, please scroll below until you find your class.  Please be sure that you are getting the information for your exact class period.  Even though instructions are the same, the registration code is different for each class.  This is critical for your grades to be entered into the proper class.  Each Principles of Ag. class has a DIFFERENT registration code.  Please be careful as you proceed to developing your login and write your user name and login down somewhere in order to have it if necessary.  

ICEV is the name of the website that all of my classes will be working from.  I will post individual assignments in a few days in order to allow everyone to set up your account.

Email me at witts@gilmerisd.org is you have any question.  Everyone take care!
